Ice Skating is a blast for the whole family. The Stephen C. West Ice Arena in Breckenridge offers an indoor or outdoor rink. Keystone Resort offers a unique outdoor rink near Dercum Square for a warmer daytime skate, or night-lights to guide you in the dark.

Sleigh Rides

Frisco and Breckenridge are both homes to the most scenic sleigh rides in the state. Glide your way through Summit County’s amazing forest behind a team of mules, followed by a delicious hot dinner. Rides are certain to provide fun for all ages.


The fastest way down the mountain is on a tube. Link tubes with your family to have even more laughs from top to bottom. Keystone and Copper Mountain have the fastest tubing hills alongside the Frisco Fun Park.
